Bus Shelters

Following requests from members of the public and community organisations, we undertook consultations with Kent County Council, Stagecoach, residents and businesses in 2019 and successfully started installing new Bus Shelters with the support of funding from the Kent County Council parish bus shelter scheme.  Please help us take care of them by reporting any issues to: reception@folkestone-tc.gov.uk
